When it was released in 2019, Murder Mystery was definitely a surprise hit with audiences. The film was cited as having the biggest opening weekend in the company’s history. And so it would stand to reason that a sequel would eventually be underway.
Today, we learned about said sequel. It’s been reported that stars Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston are both expected to return for the second iteration. We also learned that James Vanderbilt will again write the script, which will be directed by Jeremy Garelick.
As of now, there’s no word on what other cast members will be returning, but the aim is for the film to be fast tracked and start shooting soon in Paris and the Caribbean. And given Sandler’s track record of using beautiful overseas locations as backdrop for the films he makes, that may be enough to entice him to come back.
